Return Value



Once you have a reference to the VisSaveAsWeb object, you can use the objects, methods, and properties of the Save as Web Page API to publish Microsoft Visio documents to the Web. For more information about the Save as Web Page API, search for "Save as Web Page API" on MSDN.

To be able to work with the Save as Web Page API, you must get a reference to the Microsoft Visio 14.0 Save As Web Type Library in your Microsoft Visual Basic or Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) project. To get this reference in VBA, use the following procedure:

  1. In the Code group on theDeveloper tab, click Visual Basic.

  2. On the Tools menu, click References.

  3. In the Available References list, select Microsoft Visio 14.0 Save As Web Type Library and click OK.


This VBA macro shows how to use the SaveAsWebObject property to get a VisSaveAsWeb object. It also shows how to get a VisWebPageSettings object, configure Web-page settings, and create a Web page to display the active Visio document. The macro gets a Visio Application object and passes it to the SaveAsWeb procedure, which gets the VisSaveAsWeb object, configures the settings, and creates the Web page.

Before running this macro, get a reference to the Microsoft Visio 14.0 Save As Web Type Library as described above, and replace path\filename in the code with the full path to and name of the .htm file you want to create on your computer to display the Web page.

Public Sub SaveAsWebObject_Example 

 Dim vsoApplication as Visio.Application 
 Call SaveAsWeb(vsoApplication) 

End Sub 

Public Sub SaveAsWeb (vsoApplication as Visio.Application) 

 Dim objSaveAsWeb As IVisSaveAsWeb 
 Dim objWebPageSettings As IVisWebPageSettings 

 ' Get a VisSaveAsWeb object that 
 ' represents a new Web page project 
 Set objSaveAsWeb = Application.SaveAsWebObject 

 ' Get a VisWebPageSettings object 
 Set objWebPageSettings = objSaveAsWeb.WebPageSettings 

 ' Configure Web-page settings 
 objWebPageSettings.StartPage = 1 
 objWebPageSettings.EndPage = 2 
 objWebPageSettings.LongFileNames = True 
 objWebPageSettings.TargetPath = "path\filename " 

 ' Now create the pages; because we did not identify 
 ' a particular document, the active document is saved 

End Sub
